My primary areas of interest are in race, whiteness, standardness, and perceptions of student identities. I use my scholarship, teaching, and administration to explore opportunities for valuing linguistic diversity in writing classrooms in order to challenge “standard” English.

My work appears in journals such as WPA: Writing Program Administration, Written Communication, Composition Studies, and Composition Forum. I have co-edited a collection (with Cristyn L. Elder) titled Defining, Locating, and Addressing Bullying in the WPA Workplace which will be published by Utah State University Press in 2018.

Research Areas

Writing studies, race, whiteness, standardness, linguistic diversity, and writing program administration.
